ABOUT

Participation in a drum corps requires advanced physical, mental, and emotional abilities, and the financial strain can affect all of these areas, hindering the success of an individual. The Double Beat Percussion Scholarship was started to make the financial commitment easier for the member.
One percussionist in a DCI touring corps will be awarded $2500 this year.
The award will be presented at the 2017 Drum Corps International World Championships, during the Friday evening post-semifinals completion ceremonies with other award recipients. The recipient should be present to accept the scholarship. If the recipient is not in a participating world championships corps, they should make arrangements, at their expense, to be present. DCI will take care of all stadium entry credentials for the recipient.

Helping you achieve your goals as a percussionist

HISTORY

The Double Beat Percussion Scholarship was started in 2017 (it’s our first year – yay!) with a single award of $2500. This scholarship was started by a single drum corps alum who struggled to pay tour fees when he was marching, and we want to help people achieve their drum corps dreams by easing that struggle a little bit.

In partnership with Drum Corps International, the Double Beat Percussion Scholarship will be awarded to one member of a percussion section in a unit who will compete in the 2017 DCI Summer Tour. Application deadline is June 1st, 2017 and will be presented on August 11th, 2017. The winner can choose to have their award submitted to their 2017 or 2018 corps.
